“Fabulous Brooklyn walking tour”

Streetwise New York Tours

Attraction details
Owner description: Most walking tours point and stare at New York-with Streetwise New York, you live it! Streetwise New York explores neighborhoods, recounts history and studies contrast--but does so knowing that New York’s essence isn’t listed in guidebooks or displayed in museums. The true New York is melted into slices of pizza, hidden in subways, and carried in the ever-changing stories of its 8.5 million people.

My husband and I took a private walking tour with Andrew from Streetwise New York Tours a few weeks ago. Though I am originally a New Yorker, we explored parts of Brooklyn that I wasn't familiar with. Our time with Andrew and our walking tour was a highlight of our visit to NY. This is a company to strongly consider when you are making plans to visit NY or one to use even if you live in NY and want to explore a new area of the city!

Very knowledgeable guide. Our group was small enough so we could ask questions and dialogue. Our guide talked about the usual things--about history and immigrants and pushcarts--BUT we also visited places that tours usually don't cover, and our guide talked about issues in the 'hood, things tours usually don't bring up, like street art and the Essex Market and current issues.. I loved the graffiti; it's not just scribble. And our guide's restaurant recommendation for lunch in Chinatown was a trip in itself--a combination of dim sum in an old restaurant which must have been a diner and still had the old diner accoutrements with subway tiles on the floor. Lots of small streets. And after the tour, go off on your own (but bring a map.). Walking shoes. Camera, a must.

I recently went on the Brooklyn walk with Sonya and the City Hall, SoHo and Little Italy walk Dan. Both of these were fantastic walks, delivered in a relaxed manner. Dan and Sonya were great guides and offered interesting local knowledge that you wouldn't find in a guide book. I would highly recommend anyone visiting New York to go on a Streetwise Tour, I thought it was the best way to see and learn about the city!

This was a great way to explore the city! Dan is insightful, funny, knows a lot about the city, and is very accommodating. He met us at the hotel and joined us on the metro (where he taught us about the NYC metro system) and walked with us for about 3 hours. The tour covered history, culture, and some focus on art and street art.
